Ficus "Too Little" Advice

I just purchased a Ficus "Too Little". It came potted in plain potting soil (i.e. dirt). I need advice on whether I should re-pot it in bonsai soil now or wait until springtime when new growth starts.For bonsai soil I use a mix of turface/granite/orchid bark. Thanks for the advice.

This species does well as a houseplant in potting soil, just watch the water, don't over water, and it should be fine until spring. I have found that ficus can be potted at anytime of the year, I often do mine in winter here in Michigan, but spring is more forgiving, so my advice to anyone who hasn't a great deal of experience with this species is to wait until spring.
