I don’t know what’s wrong 😢

I bought 2 roses 4 days ago and they are dying. I thought the cause was fungus and sprayed an antifungal which left them with these blue spots. Today the yellowness has increased and I find some black bugs, so I sprayed insecticide. I don’t know if it will help or do more damage. Is it normal for a plant to die so quickly?
1ft to light, direct
6” pot with drainage
Last watered 2 months ago
I don’t know if it’s normal, but it’s been my experience that pests love my rose bush. It’s had powdery mildew, aphids, other stuff I could not identify. The good news is it keeps coming back after I treat it.
These plants are definitely outside plants. They can be found on porches and decks here in the south US. They need LOTS and LOTS of light and they are highly prone to pests.

Good luck, Camila! I LOVE your username!!
Thanks @AroidAdventurer and @sarahsalith ! I’m from Brazil and it’s quite sunny here, they are receiving a lot of almost directly light - there is a glass but nothing more obstructing the sun light. This place gets morning sun until 10am, and it’s really bright all day. Today they look better so finger cross 🤞🏻. (Pls don’t mind the absolute mess 😅)
