If you want to move your plants, lower and lean, plant two per container, and have two supports overhead about two feet apart. I use airplane cable and roller hooks. This is how we move them. I used to coil mine, but that takes too long, this is the best method I have found for managing tall plants. You will also keep your production up for a long season.
Plants should also be pruned for heavy production, and only need 13-15 sets of leaves to keep producing good quality fruit. I suggest trimming off the leaves around ripening trusses, and continue that up the plant as trusses mature. Some refuse to do so, and that's okay, its their garden.
