I have noticed that, over a really short time, my jade plant and Easter cactus have had chucks go missing. My e.c completed lost the top portion of one of its leaves. Before, my jade had random holes straight through its leaf as though something had buried through it despite there being no sign of pests.
I had begun spraying my e.c with a light mist of water over the past week but not my jade plant. I also have allowed them around a week between waterings, in which I thoroughly water them.
Any help would be appreciated.

You ever get field mice in the house when the seasons change?
if you can't see any bugs, but the trauma is this noticeable and it happens all at once- like overnight- its fine Friday and its damaged Saturday - could be a mouse

No mice and the plants never go outside because my climate is too cold and rainy. I live in a flat.

Some crawly bug/worm.
Dust top of soil with some Diatomasous Earth, or boric acid.

Really, I wouldn't do anything, unless it's severe. Bug/worm is probably long gone.
