Strange looking plant

I found this rooted plant on the beach over the weekend. And a week prior to that I was watching a documentary about ginsengs and where they are found and what to look for.

Then when I found this rooted plant, it occured to me that what if it could be a ginseng plant? Well, I'm not really sure.. Many plants are also like these when their roots are growing. It also looked like ground nut to me.. hahaha but, what do I know! Check it out. Have you really seen a Ginseng plant before?
