I would put at least two to three per pot and thin out later as needed. This should ensure that at least one germinates. The rose sounds as if it may be affected by sooty mold. It happens when the plant gets a pest infestation. I would recommend using neem oil, as this will get rid of the sooty mold fungus and kill the pests.
