With that much growth, you may be able to find it with just looking at the largest objects in the tablespace.  You can do that with this query:
SELECT owner, 
       segment_name, 
       SUM(bytes) tot_size 
FROM   dba_extents 
WHERE  tablespace_name = '<ts>' 
GROUP  BY owner, 
          segment_name 
ORDER  BY tot_size DESC 

Open in new window

You need to replace <ts> with the name of the tablespace.
