Alocasia sinuata 'Quilted Dreams' is a jewel or dwarf species of elephant ear with thick, bullate textured leaves.
Alocasia Quilted Dreams is well adapted as an indoor plant due to its ease of care.
To properly care for your Alocasia Quilted Dreams, simply ensure that it is in a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow your Alocasia to dry out almost completely between watering. If the leaves on your plant begin to droop or cup inward, this is a sign that you should water your plant.
Alocasia Quilted Dreams loves bright indirect light, so try to avoid north or east exposures and focus more on south and west for the best possible light for your plant.
