I call this Alocasia my "poor man's" (or person's) Variegated Monstera. But it's not a Monstera and has no leaf fenestrations or splits. It does grow much faster than one, so there's a lot of gratification with the new leaf variegation patterns. A new leaf grows about every 3 weeks. It can maintain about 4 leaves at a time. Of those, only 2 leaves look healthy at a time with the older 2 leaves showing signs of decline:
In my opinion this is another one of nature's productions of a form of art referred to as: Marbling, Paint Marbling, Paper Marbling, Ebru, Fluid Art, Swirl Paint, or Hydro Dipping:
The next 3 pics show the overall look and shape of the plant. It's only about 18 inches tall, The leaf tips have a slight curl to them and the leaf edges have a scalloped look. None of my other Alocacias have these attributes. This was labeled as Alocacia Variegated when I bought it in the Spring but I think it is an Alocasia California. Too much direct mid-day sun can result in burn marks on the white areas of the leaves. You can see a slight sun burn mark on the bottom center leaf in the white area:
This pic shows the candy-striping of the petioles, some 100% white leaves at the base, and a short trunk. I took some time to spray-paint the pot so it matches the plant colors. I often place this on the dinner table as a centerpiece while having meals:

A gave it a good watering 2 days ago and the soil is still wet and growing a lot of cotton-like mold on top of it. This mold occurs sometimes but not this much. I hope this doesn't kill it. I plan to place a fan on this plant today to encourage it to expedite the transpiration of that moisture out of the pot.
