So it has been 5 days that a noticed that my coleus plant has started to have big holes and some leaves are turning black and others are falling alone. I have searched for bugs like worms but nothing. I have heard that it is good to have coleus flowers at a bright place but because my country is really hot the leaves are dying. What should I do.

This is a case of overwatering.

The soil should be allowed to dry, thoroughly, down to at least 2 inches between waterings.

From here, you will need a fungicide, and proper care to restore the plant's beauty.
