    These plants love high humidity. You can try misting it daily or setting it on a tray of pebbles with water in it to raise the humidity. If the vine itself is not dead, it should recover once the humidity is corrected.

    I would recommend that you look for "bloom booster" fertilizers. These fertilizers are higher in phosphorous (middle NPK number) which will help the plants have more blossoms.

    Either there is a draft that is hitting the plant, which is possible near a door; or the humidity levels are too low, which happens in heated homes a lot and with this winter being rather cold, it will be drier than it has been in past years; or when you repotted, a space was left in the soil.

    Check for drafts, place the pot on a tray of pebbles filled with water to raise the humidity and tamp the soil down well to collapse any spaces that might be in the soil.

    It could transfer from one plant to the other. Roses tend to be more susceptible, but a jasmine could get fungus from the rose. If you suspect your roses have it and you want to make very sure that the jasmine does not get it, start treating the jasmine with a fungicide. We are personally fond of neem oil for this.

    It could be a few things. Most common are too little light, too little water and too little phosphorus. Check that they get at least 5 hours of light, because they are in containers, water 1-2 times a day and give them some bone meal to help with any phosphorus deficiency.

    Some trachelospermum species' leaves turn red as they get older, so long as you've got healthy new growth coming on, it should be okay.

    Are the spots powdery in nature or simply 'bleached' looking? It could be powdery mildew or water spots. At any rate, you can treat the plant with neem oil, which should take care of any fungal or pest issues.
