if you have one shroom thats mature and the rest arent is it true that you're not supposed to pick the one because it messes up the other smaller ones?
If so, should i cut the cap off of the mature one i have and leave the stem?
I'm using cakes, B+.

as long as you are not going to damage the others when you pick it, then go ahead and pick. get as close to the base of the shroom as you can and use a gentle twisting to remove it.
peace

it can mess up the myc, all you need to do is be careful when you pick them. ime with cakes they come off pretty easily, much easier than casings.
peace

I've noticed that once the largest fruits in a flush have matured, the rest of the flush doesn't grow much, so it's usually best to pick them all at once. There doesn't seem to be any harm in picking the bigger ones first, but I haven't found that the smaller ones then grow bigger.

I've never grown on cakes, however, so my experience may not apply to your situation.

I've just been picking mine as they mature because they have all been maturing (and spraying spores) at different times and biguns keep popping back up faster than I can pick em

Yes, you can cut the cap off and leave the stem to mature.

Be careful not to expose too much substrate where you pull out the shroom, it can invite contams very quickly.
