I got this spider plant about three weeks ago in a very healthy condition. After taking it home, I watered it after a week which I now know was too soon. There was a bit of root rot when I looked at the roots even though the pot has draining holes. I cut off the rotted roots but these brown streaks still keep popping up. I cut them off yesterday but I woke up to more! What should I do???

Welcome! I would suggest to do nothing right now. The plant is stressed by your cutting off the roots. Give it some time to recover, I'm thinking it will. It looks really good except for those few leaves. You can always cut these off if their appearance bothers you.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
