Definitely correct about summer dormancy. Just vaguely damp in summer is the go which is almost no watering. Mine are growing in used bonsai mix but I assume there must be some organic material for the fungi to feed on - mine is pine bark based.Love the Australian terrestrial orchids, they are tough to raise in containers, both getting the media right, and most difficult for me is remembering they are summer dormant. I did have a potful of a Pterostylis hybrid that I kept going about 8 years, then I forgot to move them to the "dry, don't water me, shelf" and they got watered a few times through the summer. Heat & wet and they rotted away. Have not seen pseudobulbs available in the last few years. Many are available, but only periodically.
