Instead, think about the various factors that are conducive to *root rot*

Yes, excessive moisture is one of them, but plants outside are clearly not experiencing mass die offs every time there’s a lot of rain

A key factor for root rot to take hold is poor oxygen in the root zone – this is mitigated by having a porous substrate. Bulky things like perlite, bark chips, and Leca balls increase porosity when combined with finer particles like coco coir and peat moss

Air flow above the soil and the trickle of water down from the soil surface (top watering) helps to cycle oxygen down through the root system

Lastly, and most importantly – LIGHT (and the all-caps is about the importance of light, not the intensity)

Light drives photosynthesis, which allows the plant to sustain itself and grow. A starving plant will have weak roots and be more susceptible to getting rot regardless of how careful you are with watering or how porous your substrate is
