It's starving, because you are relying too much on nature in a non-natural setting.


With some of the unorthodox ideas that you've floated, it's really hard to tell why your plant is in that state.  Like I told you before, worm castings alone are are not going to be enough to feed a plant very long. You have to really keep up on your plant maintenance when you go the organic route.


Why don't you tell us what you are (or not) feeding that poor creature?


At first glance, your plant has some interveinal chlorosis starting to appear on some of the older leaves, but not the younger ones.  And these yellow spots look to have happened rather suddenly.

Could this be a chlorine issue?


Nah.  It's definitely not that.

Interestingly enough if you sprout popcorn and then blend it, you can make a tea from it and it will produce these beneficial bacteria

Careful with advice, from this point out...  mites can - and usually will - claim a significant amount of your growing season, if not controlled. (even if your plants bounce back, you still lose time) Oh yeah, and then there's that other part...  they go dormant for part of the season.  And when they wake back up, they have even stronger numbers.
I think I'd be tempted to read up on beneficial mites.  They move a lot faster and farther than the bad mites, and they tend to stay in one general locale, when their job is finished.  You can literally let them go anywhere near your infested plant, and they'll find it - and all of the other infested ones, as well.
I used the aforementioned predatory mites to treat a spider mite outbreak, and I was very pleased with the results.
