Guys, what is this thing?!

I was pulling out brown ferns and weeds and this was at the root end of a plain dead brown stem of nothing recognizable.

Is it hollow? I can't really tell.

What does it feel like? Plant tissue? Looks like a piece of plastic tubing.

Could be the outer skin of an onion stalk or some other bulb plant, but the bottom looks cut very cleanly.
For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.

Plastic was my first thought.

It felt rubbery and it was moist on the inside of the tube and gooey. It was def organic.

I agree, it looks like the remains of a fungi/mushroom.
