ALL plant cells have organelles equivalent to the chloroplast!! These
PLASTIDS are only green and called chloroplasts in leaf cells and other
photosynthetically active tissues; elsewhere they have different functions
The other key organelle found in plant cells is of course the vacuole,
often up to 90% of the total cell volume.
