Joe Grienauer

Orchid expert and owner, Emerald City Orchids and NWFGS garden co-creator

Joe Grienauer established Emerald City Orchids in 2008 in Seattle, WA. He learned the skill of growing orchids while working at Baron’s Orchids in Morro Bay, CA after earning a BA in Comparative Literature from the University of Washington. He is an avid reader on the subject of orchids and enjoys spending as much time as possible in the Emerald City Orchids greenhouse. He was part of the team that annually designs and builds the Northwest Orchid Society’s show garden, which in 2017 won a Silver medal for “Orchid Garden Wedding Banquet.” Sorry single ladies and gentlemen, he’s married.

Visit the Emerald City Orchids booth, #2228 in the Plant Market at this year’s show.

Celebrate with Beautiful Orchids

Joe will help you get Orchids that you treasure with this great hands-on demonstration. He’ll cover basic Orchid background, care, fertilization, and pest/disease control. He’ll review greenhouse vs. window vs. artificial light growing techniques, how to initiate flowers on a healthy plant, and which orchids are best for newbies. He’ll also demo the all-important Orchid repotting orchid. Even brown thumbs can grow Orchids if they learn the basic techniques, and Joe is just the person to get you started.
