Hi Amb I managed to catch a glimpse of the photo before the access was denied.

Can you clean the black marks away with soap and water? If not, remove the affected petals. If the same symptoms returns, I think its a fungal or bacterial disease.

Replace the growing media with one that is clean and well-draining. Use a plastic container if you haven't already. Avoid over-watering; water only when the soil surface looks almost dry.
