Bread itself is not known for having a long shelf life, especially when it is left out on a counter, shelf, or other open-aired compartment. It is not usually mold that is the first concern, but staleness. Generally speaking, however, whole wheat bread will mold faster than white bread. Depending on the brand you are using or the age at purchase, these results may differ. It all depends on the type of preservatives used in either case and different manufacturers use different kinds and amounts of preservation techniques.
However, should we run an experiment where two loaves of bread are baked and then put side by side one another and allowed to mold, the wheat bread should mold faster than the white bread. This has a lot to do with the way these two different kinds of bread are made. Essentially, whole wheat bread is made 'more naturally', hence the name 'whole wheat bread' and these ingredients and baking methods produce a tasty and, of course more natural, product but one that will be more susceptible to deterioration and mold at a faster rate.
Of course, the time it takes for either white or whole wheat bread to mold will also depend on the storage conditions. If kept in a dry place in a sealed environment then the bread will take longer to deteriorate and attract mold. Some people even freeze their bread to improve the lifespan and in this instance, if both loaves are frozen, both would probably maintain their freshness at a similar rate.

It all depends on the preservatives that they put in the bread. If there are no preservatives it will usually be the white bread because it breaks down easier but only by a day or two. Most of the bread you buy in the store has preservatives because the bread would be starting to mold if it didn't by the time it reached the store. For your experiment you should use a lot of different brands of white and wheat and put them each in their own plastic bag and set them on the counter and watch to see which go moldy first - just make sure to mark the bags so you know which one is which.

It grows faster on white because there is no nutrients to protect it, and the wheat has many, so it helps delay the molding process.

From working in a deli, I would say the white molds faster.  At least I see the mold on the white, lol,
I hardly threw out wheat bread like I did for white rolls, buns, bread, subs...

Ohh, have you tried German bread? I tried it for the first time a month ago, I ordered it for review. And you know, I didn’t regret what I ordered. Because before that I used to eat banana bread, but this one stole my heart. If you become interested, visit this site edelweiss bakery where you can order without any problems. I think you should like it, my family also tried it and said that it is great.

I agree with white bread because it is weak but you think it wouldn't because it has calcium

It molds faster on white bread because it is not as healthy as wheat bread is that is my answer for my question.
