Pole green beans

Toledo, OH(Zone 6a)

I've always planted bush beans and have never grown pole beans before. I thought i was planting all bush beans but it turned out there were pole beans in the mix.

So how do I support them? Does each plant send up only one tendril or multiple ones? Would one stake do per plant or do I need multiple?

Here are a few articles showing many ways to support pole beans.

I grow mine on some cattle panels I once used for tomatoes before some trees grew up and started shading that area, but almost any of the methods described in those articles will work. Most varieties I grow have one main vertical vine, but when it reaches the top of my 6-foot supports it starts meandering sideways.
