FTP quotas dont have to be set as they are a sub quota of the website quota. so a FTP client can never exceed the website quota.

Because you set web quota to -1. A client wont be able to do that, but as admin you are able to override client quotas and thats what you did by disabling quota for this web, similar to the root user on linux.

Go to the website settings, enter 50 into the quota field and press save.
