Help. Soil won’t dry out

I recently bought a lemon/lime tree from online. I live in the Midwest so the plant is already inside for the cold weather. I watered it almost 2 weeks ago and the soil is still moist. I already had one plant die from overwatering/root rot and don’t want this to happen again. This was no problem when the tree was outside in the direct sunlight. Should I be worried? Do I wait until it’s completely dried before watering it or water it now? Again, the soil is moist (not soaked). I currently have it as I said indoor under a grow light. Not entirely sure how to proceed from here.
