check you other plants and see if any have leaves bitten....................try this...out of the direct sunlight......do this outside..................mix 1 teasp of liquid hand soap and 1 qt water x enough to make a 5 gallon container 3/4 full of liquid.......and stir that mix and put the whole plant in there until it btops bubbleing....................check to see if any tiny little bugs are on & around where you had the plant......if the area is solid plastic or painted or glass or countertop......you can mix vinegar and water and spray and wipe to kill any ants or small bugs.......dry it good.....................

if that soap mix does not work, you will have to go on to Sevin...read the label carefully to make sure that plant can handle this chemical....wear old clothes, goggles, gloves and a mask.  Keep children & animals away from this plant until it is dry........you can make up a mix enough for a 5 gallon bucket and dip it.   let it in there until the bubbles stop......then sit it out to dry...............
