I stupidly left my money tree outside on 2 sunny days after watering it. The top leaves lighten and some 2-3 died. Picture attached. Is there anything I can do to help keep it alive?

Thank you!

Hi Poggioli, Welcome! to!

Your Money Tree (Pachira aquatica) looks fine to me! Damaged, sunburned leaves will eventually dry up and drop but that won't prohibit new leaf growth. My Money Trees stay outside on my pool deck year round and leaves sometimes turn yellow and drop but new leaves always emerge to replace them.
