I have little holes on the leaves of my money tree. What ...

Have you ever noticed bugs of gnats on your plant or in the soil? I’m thinking bugs got to it. If so, neem oil is your best friend to fend off these unfriendly critters! neem oil bottles will usually have the mixing ratios with water and a dash of dish soap listed on the side. I hope that helps! The plants doesn’t look unhealthy otherwise! Happy growing!
Check for pests such as aphids or other bug. They can camouflage and can be hard to look for so check the leaves thoroughly. Leaf diseases can also cause holes. β€œ- **Identification**: Look for discolored spots with a defined edge that might dry out and fall off, creating holes.
- **Solution**: Remove affected leaves, improve air circulation, and avoid overhead watering. fungicides can help if the problem persists.” And also nutrient deficiency which is rare β€œLack of Nutrients**: While less common, a severe deficiency in certain nutrients can weaken the plant, making it more susceptible to damage.
- **Solution**: Ensure the plant is receiving balanced fertilization.” Btw the quoted I got from ChatGPT but from my experience with aphids they can hide and if you have other plants that have pests it can go to your other ones too.

I'm no expert, but I do have an ca. 20 y.o. money tree. She'll get spots like that when the sun's rays accidentally hits her leaves. (This will happen when placing in/or removing from the screen porch).
