those last pics look normal :thumbup: but i can't tell what that orange blob is because the photos are blurry and it's hard to see through that glass. i'd just keep an eye on it. you'll get a better idea of what it is in a week.

I noticed the vermiculite I used has shiny specks of mineral, so it could be that. But after being mixed thoroughly with BRF and water, it shoud be covered with substrate. Sadly, the orange booger looking thing is in a couple jars, and even more unfortunately, they happen to be the jars that have the healthiest (bright white and stringy) looking mycellium.

Does anyone know if there is a way to salvage a PF tek jar if it has a small impurity/contaminant in it? I imagine opening the jars at this point would probably only make it worse. But in the worst case scenario, is it possible to just cut out the healthy mycellium in a possibly contaminated jar and just use those chunks?

no, you can't cut out contams.

just wait and see what happens. i know it's hard but be patient. give it a closer look when you birth the jars.
