Is composite decking subject to black mold?

I am planning to replace the old (installed in 1921) wood flooring on my covered front porch because it's really showing its age. I was planning to use composite decking planks, but recently I've heard and read comments that it is very prone to black mold, which is almost impossible to completely clean / remove and it reappears. I want the new floor to be as maintenance free as possible (really don't want to have to paint / repaint the floor), so what's my best option?

Before we get to the composites portion, let me first ask you what type of decking you have now -- is it regular deck boards, or tongue & groove boards...
