Pachira aquatica (Braided Money Tree) soil type?

Hi ive been wanting to get a Pachira aquatica for quite some time but I'm making sure I know how to take care of it properly and for optimal growth and the only thing that I can not find is the soil type. I read that it should be a well draining soil so should I just use cactus soil or organic potting soil, sand and pearlite?

This tree is more tolerant of poor draining soils than most, but the use of a good bonsai soil could benifit the trees growth.
