Unfortunately, i got root rot on my monstera varigata for approxm. 2 months ago and when i saw it immediately remove all the damage roots, i cutted some of the leaves and placed them into a jar with water to let new root system to grow, like when propagating monstera cutting. 🌱🌿New and healthy roots seems to come but suddenly i discovered there are some small yellow spot on the leaves, mostly behind the leaves and some on the stem to the leaves? I know that some of the leaves was damage by the root rot i got, but it seems some of the small yellow spots came after that... 🤔 i changing the water in the jar 2 times in a week and the root looks good and growing. It looks almost like som small bugs and there is not possible to remove it. What is wrong with it? 😕

Root rot only damages the roots of a plant. But the rest of the plant depends on healthy roots so when roots are unhealthy then a variety of generic leaf symptoms may occur including leaf spots, brown edges, and dying leaves.
It's not possible to know just what caused the spots on the leaves of your cuttings, but it doesn't matter. The spots are permanent and they may even spread but it is not because they are diseased. If the new roots that are now growing are properly cared for, then new leaf growth should be healthy and generally spot-free.
