Making roots larger on Ficus 'Ginseng'

This is my first post ever on the forums! I recently bought a Ficus retusa 'Ginseng' and re-potted it, the plant is fine and sits in the brightest location I can give it. I have been eyeing the larger plants of this variety at IKEA but they seem to be sold out so I had to settle for a smaller one at a local florist.
Since I find the larger ones most beautiful I wanted to ask if there is anything I can do beyond general good care to increase the size of the tubers? I got it a brand new unglazed clay pot, a bit larger than the plastic pot it came in and with good rich soil.
Oh, and I realize that it would probably be better to post in the bonsai sub forum but it seems to be available only to US members (I'm in Stockholm, Sweden)
Thanks so much!
