I have done a mold experiment, and I find that there are
greenish-yellow, black, and white colors on the wheat breads. I have 4
pieces of bread, and each was provided with different amount of water.
Why there are different colours appearing on the same kind of bread? and
what causes this?
The different color molds are caused by different species of mold growing on
the bread. Keep in mind that there are probably several hundred different
species of mold.

There are different species of molds that grow on bread, you may have more
than one growing on the same piece. This site may be helpful:
