The jar on the left is quite a bit lighter than the one on the right. . .is it just a moisture thing or could the entire left jar be covered in a 'wispy' mold which gives it the light color?  Or is the one on the left *already* colonized and is showing signs of a little friend joining the party?  Hmm, maybe the one on the left is colonized with mold and the section you have circled is *mycelium* joining the party :wink:

You're right, things don't look good with either of them, IMO. . .give some time before deciding for sure.

the jars were just innoculated a few days ago
the white growth is the only growth so far, i'm not really sure why it is so much lighter than the other

I think the jar on the left shows sign of germination, although there's a moist section at the right of the mycelium. Wait a couple of days and take another pic.
The jar on the right has already germinated but i believe you got something growing in the same place the mycelium is growing, as i see some yellow discoloration. Take another pic without flash but with good ambient lightning.
