many of the new leaves and stems are a nice green but they are really limp leaves are really wrinkled like they have no life.I thought if I watered it abit more than I normally do it would help. I even put it in front of the window so it would get more light but that ddidn't seem to help. I'm up for any new ideas PLEASE

In the photo, the leaves are too dark to see what you are seeing. It would also help to be able to see the pot as well as the plant.

What direction does the window face? What is your watering routine?

Your Pachira looks very healthy. I don't know why that tall stem is drooping. However, because the plant is starting to get tall, I recommend that you prune off the top foot or so of the drooping stem. Pruning will keep the plant manageable and keep it from becoming leggy and ungainly.

The wrinkled leaves are normal. The plant doesn't show any signs of water or light stress, so don't do anything more drastic than some judicious pruning.
