     Yes, I had 3 pots of the green form for sale on the member's table, and 
only sold one (discounted), and gave away the other two. The Miami crowd 
consider them weeds, but it is a pretty green color.
    When I brought home a 15 gallon monster plant of this from the show a few 
years ago (from Scott Hyndman), my kids called it the 'Jolly Green Giant', 
and that's what I have called it ever since. Not a 'legal' name, but it does 
fit. But it still doesn't sell even with a good name.
    I think it is totally different than boivinii, since it flowers before 
the foliage comes up, (the regular form flowers after the foliage), and it goes 
dormant for a short time in early summer, where boivinii goes dormant for most 
of the winter. And to my untrained eye, the flowers look different also. And 
it is a much larger plant in all of it's parts.
     Maybe it would sell if Wilbert renames it as a new Amorphophallus?
