To be honest I think she just created a secret technique a la the Nara, Akimichi, Yamanka and Aburame clans.
Hashirama gives the very essence of life to his wood techniques, whereas Konan doesn't to her paper.
Perhaps we saw the Mokuton the wrong way, perhaps it was not a purely Senju ability, Konan creates what amounts to dead plants whereas Hashirama creates living ones because of his holy chakra.
It could be that Hashirama's mother had the same descendency like Konan, the ability to create an element out of water and earth which isn't alive yet thanks to Hashirama's Senju Yang Chakra the dead element became alive and gave birth to the wood release.
It would explain why nobody in the Senju clan awoke the power besides him, it's not a Senju inherent ability, it is a mixed blood ability conceived through paper release (dead plant) and Senju life giving chakra.

First of i dont think anyone said that the "paper" she is using is made from "plants". So first gather some evidence thats shows what her "paper" is made of.

also idk if she "creates" this "paper" herself(using chakara)...
imo she just just infuses sheets of paper with her own chakara....
she formed a huge tree made from sheets of paper...
In my opinion she has paper release which is a variation of dead plant matter of nature transformation.
Hashirama inherited this ability from his mother but his Senju chakra gave life to the plant cells and thus created the Mokuton we know.
if she could "release" paper then why not get rid of the paper that got oil on it from jiraya and just "release" more?
No, simply because it was never stated to be one. Manipulating something made out of wood doesn't make it mokuton. Gaara controls sand, and it is not Doton. Nara and Aburame clans developed jutsus to control shadows and bugs and there is no kage-ton or bug-ton. Point is, plenty of jutsus can control specific objects but it doesn't use elemenental nature manipulation.
its said that when she was young she was very good at infusing chakara to paper meaning she had paper and then put chakara on it and she got so good at it that she would later do crazy things...
Nevertheless, I think Konan can produce paper or Amegakure must have the biggest celuloid industry in the entire ninja world.
I was just about to say Inton (yin release) was responsible. I put anything that doesn't make sense under Inton because it requires spiritual energy and it just turns one's imagination into reality. It doesn't create life from nothing, but it does create form from nothing. And paper isn't a form of life. It's dead trees after all.Originally Posted by Oathencrantz
For the record, I consider Baika no Jutsu Yang release, because enhancing one's body should be considered manipulation of life. IMO.
Mokuton isn't a choice as it needs the combination of Water and Earth. It's Hashirama's special KKG so different from papers which Konan produces with her own chakra.
To me the only big distinction is that Hashirama's life giving miraculous chakra/cells makes living threes out of the same element Konan uses.
One crazy thing are those 600 billion paper tags, it's clear she had to make all that paper with her chakra not to mention she split a lake in two to activate it hence she can have at least Suiton in her chakra nature.
The only other guy in the series which is know to create ludicrous out of scale things out of an unique element in Hashirama Senju so I can't help but relate those two even without any deep connection.
Also, ninjabot nice add you have here, all those bizarre ninja techniques can easily fall into Inton and Yangton release.
