pachira money tree help - markings on leaves
Hi everyone. First off I want to apologize if I am repeating anything that has already been touched on. I've been doing some research but am still unclear as to what might be going on with my pachira money tree. I purchased my money tree from Walgreens maybe two months ago or so. When I purchased this plant, it looked to be sickly with dropping leaves. I knew there was a chance the plant may die given it's state at time of purchase but wanted to try anyway. Just something rewarding about saving a plant that would otherwise be tossed out. It came in a pot without drainage topped with glued rocks. Immediately I broke the rocks away to find the plant socking in mud as I was able to pour out 1/4 cup of water from the planter. I did some research on the proper planting media to use and re-potted immediately. I didn't water for the first two weeks to give the plant a chance to dry out since I have no idea how long it had been in standing water. The tag states to water weekly and never allow soil to dry out. I may have to re-pot again as I'm playing around with what types of planters I can make work. Currently I have the tree in a glass bowl with rocks at the bottom for drainage. I water once a week if needed or moisten soil with light misting if I feel it doesn't need a full watering for the week. After watering I wait 10 minutes to allow the roots to have a nice drink and careful drain the excess water. So far the plant seems to be doing much better. The leaves have stopped dropping and I am excited to report I have some new growth. Unfortunately I still have some spots and partially dead looking areas on the original leaves. I would like to take care of the problem before it spreads to the new growth. I'm wondering if my money tree has bugs and/or disease. I have attached a few links to pictures I have uploaded to photobucket. If anyone has any ideas what is going on, I would greatly appreciate the help.
Following is a description of each picture per pic title: (below each is listed from money tree pic 1-6, my photobucket links are backwards from money tree pic 6-1 - sorry for any confusion I am new to forums. This is my first post ever...)

money tree pic 2 - some of the dead areas I am finding on original leaves
money tree pic 3 - holes in leaves maybe due to bugs?
money tree pic 4 - another shot of some dead looking areas and lower leaf with another hole
money tree pic 5 - this shot is meant to show some of the new growth popping through the top of the plant
money tree pic 6 - the larger section on the lower right is all new growth
Thanks for taking the time to view my post and plant! I look forward to having a beautiful, healthy, happy plant hopefully soon!
