thinning okra

I have over-planted my okra and it needs to be thinned out. How far apart should the plants be after thinning?

I am not sure the "correct"

I am not sure the "correct" distance, but ours are usually 6"-7" apart in row, and we have never had a problem. The rows are planted 18" apart.

I didn't thin mine. Have 2-4 plants in each "bundle." Planted them about 12 inches apart, rows at 18" apart. I use the stakes that I set my twine up for a measure. Starting to get quite a few to pick now.
