It likely feeds of residual bacteria, algae or organic material trapped in the concrete. When concrete becomes humid it might bring those things to the surface, allowing mold to hang on and grow, but only for so long.

Seeds fly around in the wind and organic material can get stuck to concrete and brick.

Moisture keeps it alive.
