I'm having a problem understanding the meaning of plant spacing vs. row spacing vs plant to plant spacing. Could someone please explain the difference? Looked for a glossary but couldn't find one.

Usually the plant spacing is

Usually the plant spacing is the space from "main stem" to "main stem" side to side (ie. X------X-------X......x is plant and --- would be the given plant spacing distance.. if you know what I mean. The row spacing is the space between each row of spaced plants.....so the up and down distance basically. (Ie. X-------X-------X
X-------X-------X)
THE space between each row.....plant to plant spacing is same as plant spacing if you want to plant in rows use the row spacing to space each row...simple as that
