The answer is no. I'm currently finishing up my senior thesis about the growth of bread mold on different types of bread. There are many reasons why they don't grow at the same rate, but the two major reasons are the amount of water activity in the bread and the preservatives added into the yeast.  From my experiment, Sunbeam White bread molded extremely faster than Natures on Honey Wheat. I purchased both at the same time. Sunbeam molded after only a week, and the Honey Wheat took four and a half weeks to mold because it much dryer than that of white bread.

I am doing a project like that and I got the same answer, no. Two of my breads molded so far. A fast way to make bread mold is to add water, and if that doesnt work put sugar or lemon juice in it. When I did that the bread right away molded.

THe answer is no because the water in each bread and all the types: Foccoica, flat bread, french bread, and whole grain did and the flat bread molded 1st and then 3days later the french bread and the other breads didn't mold yet.

Yes because of the rate of the water in the bread

No fresh mold grows mold faster because bred from the bred lie in the supermarket have more preservatives in it

Yes because of the preservatives in the different types of bread affect the immunity to mold itself.
