At about any warm temperature as long as there is moisture which a plastic bag can produce. I have show my daughters of paper and plastic for bread as they had ask me why some bread comes in paper and some in plastic and some in both. If you take a bread in paper it will stale as the paper absorbs the moisture. If you have bread in plastic it will mold as the plastic provides the yeast the ability to grow mold. If you take a loaf of French bread which usually comes in paper it hardens rather quickly but if you wrap the paper covered bread in plastic it will stay soft.

I agree with the last comment, with the additional info.  From 32 to 130 degrees is the answer with the understanding that as long as there is moisture within those temps you will get growth.  At the point when the bread is completely dry there can be no more growth.

Yes, temperature and moisture in the air affect growth of the mold.  :)

If the temperature is too cold (freezing) the mold cannot grow at all until things warm up.  If the temperature is too hot, it can kill the mold, and it can never grow.
