Plastids:

  • Plastids are present only in plant cells.

  • There are two types of plastids – chromoplasts (coloured plastids) and leucoplasts (white or colourless plastids).

  • Chromoplasts containing the pigment chlorophyll are known as chloroplasts.

  • And as we all know, chlorophyll plays a significant role in photosynthesis.

  • Leucoplasts are primarily organelles in which materials such as starch, oils, and protein granules are stored

  • Plastids also have their own DNA and ribosomes.
