Can anyone identify this weird fungus looking thing that is growing on my english Ivy. I just recently bought the ivy, they were potted in the store for me, and I have been watering as instructed. Any help is appreciated.

It looks like prop roots have sprouted on the stem that are used to attach to trees and structures.* They are sometimes called suckers or root-like structures. See the lower left picture here with the yellow arrows.* That's why it's best not to plant this in the garden.
