    I have 7 plants growing from one pot that was in a greenhouse. I need to separate these plants into my big box on the porch. How far do they need to be apart so they don't kill out the other plants?

    I usually plant my cucs about 9" apart but I think 4" would be the minimum.

    Yeah, I currently have eight of them growing that are four inches a part, I would advise a bit more room as they are like turning into one giant plant. Doesn't seem to slow their growth of Cucumbers I have gotten though, I have already made a giant jar of Pickles from one harvest and there are still more on the way.

    Cucumbers are planted 4ft apart on Average, so that would be a good distance to go by !! :)

    just to let you know they do like to grow out and spread. I learned that having something for them to climb helps keep the veggies up off the ground :)
