You can cut them off right at the plant so you dont have any unsightly runner stumps on the mother plants. Whenever I transplant the babies from runners I trim off both sides and leave about a 1/4" - 3/8" piece of the runner attached to help anchor the new plants in the substrate...they rot off eventually anyways.
