configuring remote (AWS) conda environment

I'd like to run my local code with a remote python interpreter on AWS. I followed the instructions [https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/configuring-remote-python-interpreters.html] for using ssh to do so. But before doing this, I rebuilt my local conda environment in AWS using conda list --export, thinking that this would reduce the work required for Pycharm to set up the remote environment. That appears to have failed; Pycharm has been copying files from my remote environment for several minutes now; it appear to be copying my entire environment through ssh. How can I save time in Pycharm by building the environment remotely? Or am I missing something?
