    Sorry, I gotta disagree with the earwig ID, for two reasons. The head shape is completely different...appears rounded in siccmade's photo, while the earwig is more triangular. And the prothorax and mesothorax in siccmade's insect are VERY long...look how far apart the legs are.

    My first instinct is to say Rove Beetle. (order Coleoptera, family Staphylinidae). But it looks even more like a bristletail (order Diplura), which is a very cool find and I hope you didn't feed it to your plants.

    Oh, actually.. Order Embiidina, the web-spinners. I'm guessing you live in a warm climate?

    This looks like one of the wingless females, which seem to be hard to identify? Again, a very cool insect in my opinion. I've never seen one...we don't have them up north.

    It appears that Presto has an ID on your bug. Thats a cool one though, I'd definitely let it be. Its like a spider without the fangs and general spiderness.
