My Pachira has little brownish spots in some leaves and I have been cutting them off but the few leaves left are starting to get them too and I can’t find other oils at this time. I’m attaching some pictures hope you can see them and give me some advice.

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the damage to confirm the disease. Depending on the type of disease your plant has, it may or may not be effective, and it may or may not cause damage to your plant.

You will need to play around with ratios and start on small parts of your plant.

In reality, though, using wettable sulfur should to the trick with one or two applications. The only thing is that you will need to correct the issue causing the disease, as well. If not, it will return.

Usually, leaf spot diseases, whether bacterial or fungal, will be caused by overly wet soils that do not have time to dry out thoroughly down to about 3 or 4 inches or so. Be sure to allow your Pachira to dry out between waterings. Here are some article that will help:
