If you cut the cap off will the stem rot?

So say there is this one mature mushroom clustered with many smaller mushrooms. You don't want it to drop spores. Would it be best to just pull the whole thing up or could you cut the cap or about the base of the stem and allow those smaller mushrooms in the cluster to grow?

If someone cuts the cap of a mushroom off, would the stem survive at least a couple of days with out rotting?

personally i would cut the base of the stem with sterile scissors about 1/4" to 1/2" of the base of the stem. that way you don't have to touch the other ones.

I'd just pull it off carfully or just wait for the rest to catch up. Spores never hurt anything with me.
