Water and soil fertility are the first considerations.
From the photos the plant appears to have a severe nutrient deficiency, as evidenced by the chlorosis (yellowing) and mottled, spotty discoloration.
First be sure that the potted plant is getting enough water to facilitate absorption and uptake of available soil minerals.
Fertilize with a complete organic fertilizer.
