good medium for growing potted figs

Does anyone know what is a good medium for growing a Brown Turkey fig in a pot in zone 6 (ny)? Just plain soil or a potting mix?

You may find the information in the thread I left a link to below of interest. There are also basic recipes for media that will work extremely well on woody material in containers. Pay particular attention to the 'gritty mix'.
