Weird spots on my new plantโ€™s leaves

I got this ficus in a pretty rough shape because I felt very sorry for her. She had some root rot and was barely in the soil. Her leaves were kind of weird and the trunk and branches were very dry. I promptly eliminated the rotten roots and put her in a new pot with bonsai soil and some volcanic stone for acidity and good drainage. Yesterday I looked at her and her leaves were still a bit weird. And thatโ€™s when I discovered this in a couple of leaves. Does anyone know what this is?

@ChummyRyebrome they're like the wise old sages of the plant world. Alright, for your bonsai buddy, the same rules generally apply. Keep an eye on the soil moisture, make sure it's just right โ€“ not too wet, not too dry. Ginseng bonsai also enjoy bright, indirect light, so find them a cozy spot where they can soak up those rays without getting sunburned. And if those spots on the leaves start to spread, well, it might be time for a little bonsai spa treatment with some gentle fungicide. Your wise little ginseng bonsai will appreciate the pampering, I'm sure!
@JungleDreamer thanks for the tips โ˜บ๏ธ I made sure to clip the affected leaves so it wouldnโ€™t spread, whatever it might be. Letโ€™s wait and see ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
