What compost should I use to repot my new dragon tree?

I have recently purchased a dragon tree. I belive the conditions in my hallway (where it will be situated) are good. However, I have bought a new pot for it to sit in and I wondered What sort of compost I should use to re pot it? I have recently potted a rhododendron and bought the compost suitable for this. My partner says that we should use the remaining compst for the dragon tree but I am concerned that they may thrive in different types of compost. Please help!

On plant Dracaena marginata



Every site I've seen suggests they prefer acidic soils so Rhododendron compost should be perfect.
