I have been taking care of this plant for awhile now. It's been producing new growths which is great! I have also been fertilizing it every few weeks. It also gets full sun (I believe) besides the occasional rainy day.

However, I have noticed a couple of leaves have discoloration. From what I could see - this was the worst leaf. But there were a few baby leaves with similar coloring.

I also checked under the pot and found tiny tiny grey bugs by the roots.

What's the source of this problem? Are the bugs a concern? Thank you!

Are the old leaves the ones looking ugly?

Welcome!

Roses just don't make good long term houseplants. Even in your very sunniest window, its not full sun. They are also very prone to mildew. The best you can do for it is find a place outside.

I don't believe so. There are some small baby leaves with very minimal discoloration. Not to the large leafs degree though.

Are you suspecting this is a sun issue then?

Its an indoor issue. Roses and Azaleas are not indoor plants, no matter what you do or how hard you try.

There are, nowadays, many, many little Miniature roses sold in tiny pots, at places like grocery stores. These plants are intended to be used rather as you would a bouquet of cut roses. Decor for the house.

But if you want them to live and flourish, you should, fairly quickly, get them out of the tiny pots. Pot them up, let them recover in a friendly outdoor location, and then plant them, in the ground, or in a large pot.

Roses just don't flourish, long-term, as indoor plants. For an indoor plant, you'd do better to buy a philodendron.
