holes in leaves
I have had a "money tree" for about a year. I don't know its real name. When I bought it, it was healthy looking and now even though it is still growing taller and new leaves are sprouting many of the leaves are starting get holes in them and then the leaves shrivel up and fall off. I don't see any bugs on the leaves or anywhere on the tree. Can you tell me what is going on and if there is anything (preferably natural) that I can put on it to stop the damage.

Several plants go by the common name of money tree. The one that first comes to mind for me is Pachira. Regardless of the identity of the plant, holes in its leaves are either being caused by insects or other physical injury to the leaves, possibly while they are still in the bud stage. If you don't see any insects, its difficult to suggest what natural product might be effective.
