Can I grow a moldy onion?

So I was growing an onion scrap in a baggie and it was doing pretty well with lots of roots. I took it out to plant it, and at the bottom the old dry roots are covered in mold. Should I plant or toss? Is the onion supposed to break down? and should it be moldy when it does?

Edit: Hi everyone, thank you for all your help! I decided to follow your suggestions and plant it anyway, I'll give an update later on if it survives or dies. Thanks everyone and have a good day
