Is it normal for the mycelium not be very bright white in early stages of growth? I have a bunch (4-5 jars) that have growth but it just looks like the glass on the jars is foggy there. It's not though I can tell it's some type of growth. Hope its not contammed..any ideas..I wont be able to post pics for about 4 days so no I don't have any pics right now.
It's ok to leave contammed jars in the incubator with the rest of the jars right? Or will this lead to further contamming of the rest of the jars?
Give em a few days and see if the white doesnt fill in and look normal. I have seen early myc growth look a little on the dingy side due to it covering a lot of ground very fast. It should begin to get the classic bright white look soon if it is indeed healthy myc.
Just to add one thing to what Mykey said. If the fuzzy growth doesn't become bright white in the next few days, then you should be dealing with cobweb mold, which at that stage, cannot be treated. Answering your questions,

Yes, it's normal.

You should separate good jars from bad jars but this is only needed if you know they are really contaminated.
