Put it in a insulated space, stickered and put a dehumidifier in the space. As the wood dries out it should “uncup”...

Good Luck!

Let it dry out, then plane it again. The wood will move as it wants to, it will be extremely unlikely to move all the way back. Also, remember this as you make projects with that wood; it is likely to warp again if it can.
