Cutting rootee in hydroton - now what?

Lakeland, FL(Zone 10a)

I managed to get a rare fig cutting to root in hydroton. It has a great root mass forming but am not sure what to do now. I suppose I should wait until some vegatative growth starts, but how do I get it out of the hydroton and into a regular media without damaging the roots? What should I be adding to the water as a fertilizer while in the hydroton? This Ficus cutting was a chore, took years to get one to root out of dozens, and want too make sure I don't mess it up. Any help would be appreciated. It is a tropical Ficus, not an edible one.
