No expert here, but try lowering your humidity a tad bit or raising the temps a few degress. I use fox farms with chunky perlite and I poke plenty of holes in all sides of pot for aeration… Try adding a little more air… It all depends on how big the pot and plant is how much water it will suck up. I give about a gallon to my medium to large size plants in 5 gallon containers

Probably goes without saying but get rid of any standing water if the pot is sitting in any. A shop vac will work if you can’t lift the plant for some reason. Otherwise, I’d just let it dry. Don’t water again until it needs it then pour slowly. Easier to add more than take it away.
