As the plant gets further into flower, the stems become more wooden and wont be able to bend so easily. You might be able to train a little during the early days of stretch, but once the flowers form you gotta be really careful, they will break more easily. I dont do any more training after flip really, only if IΒ  really have toΒ

You can tie them down at any stage mate and it's something I do on every grow


Do it man, you can even Supercrop in flower if you really need to.Β  It won't yield as much if you do something that extreme, but it will heal and live on.Β  πŸ˜„Β 

Like Macky said, further in flower they are the less bendy they get,so just be careful and patient when bending em over.Β

I am going to lean with @macky on this one, personally I will train all the way up to end of stretch as that's when those stems start to thicken and harden, once that starts it becomes a real fight to bend them without snapping them.Β Β 

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.

Yeah nitrogen also plays a role in bending plants high in nitrogen are easier to bend than plants with a lower nitrogen if remember rightly

Im not entirely sure, the plant uses nitrogen to some extent through the whole grow so and the largest uptake period of nitrogen is in the vegetative period so it could well play a major role in the elasticity of the branches. By extension that hormone trigger into flower could be considered the cause of the branches stiffening up with the uptake of extra PK as they get ready to hold the weight of the flowers. Or a mix of both, I find that until stretch is done they tend to be easier to manipulate, once stretch stops that's when they start getting woody.Β
