[Arabidopsis] plastid in pollens

Hi,
I want to know if pollen cells also have plastids? Some references said "no
plastids", and some said "no functional plastids". Textbook said that
chloroplast genome is from the egg.
So, if no, or no functional, plastids, in pollens, how could people do
plant cell culture or even embryomorphogenesis from pollen cells?
I got confused.
Can anyone help?
Thanks.
SL
