Q.What are these white spots on this root?

I have a plant that I re-potted. There was a root and I thought I’d put it in water to try to reroot. It has these white spots on it and I’m not sure if it worked.

It appears to be a superficial fungus infection on the surface of the root, due to standing in water. I'd put it in sand or soil that can drain adequately while it roots. Use a rooting compound, which usually has a fungicide ingredient for this purpose.
