If a pumpkin stem causes a pumpkin to grow on an adjacent block, all fully grown pumpkin stems that are not connected to a pumpkin already will connect to the new pumpkin and refuse to grow their own.
- On a 5x5 area, create a pumpkin farm similar to the following: http://i.imgur.com/C0WtPWP.png
- Use bonemeal to make all four pumpkin stems fully grown.
- Place a pumpkin in the center space.
- Observe that all four pumpkin stems connect to it and will not spawn any additional pumpkins in the additional empty spaces regardless of how long you wait: http://i.imgur.com/2LY6pF4.png
Pumpkin stems should not attach to any pumpkin that already has a stem attached to it.
A possible solution would be to use an additional bit in the pumpkin and melon's data values. This bit would act as a flag and activate as soon as one stem attaches to it, preventing other adjacent stems from also attaching to it.
