No its the substrate depth that will determine the amount of shrooms, the potency will be determined by what kind of substrate it is, ie plain BRF, or cased to poo?
Although results will vary

The casin layer is not meant to have any nutes so will not affect potency, is there mainly for providing moisture to the shrooms.
U want a casin layer to be about 1/4 of ya substrate, so if u got 4 inches of sub then 1nch of casin is good.

What works good as a substrate except vermiculite or perlite?
I want to use rye and millet as a substrate and probably throw some corn in and put dextrose in the water.
If I inoculate a jar then I won't have a too thick substrate so I was thinking about putting the substrate over some other soaked and sterilized rye. I know it's not the same but until the second flush I guess the mycelium would have grown into the new substrate as well.
What do you think?
