I think I would have been better off to not dead-end. The goal of a smaller plant could be acheived by limiting the growth at the back if the plant but allowing/keeping more growth at the pumpkin. I am unsure if xylem or phloem is limiting. The vines certainly need both. Some nutrients do not enter the phloem very well, but yet... the pumpkin may rely entirely on phloem?
