Anything you order (whether kratom
or a t-shirt, online or from a catalogue) isn't necessarily going to match the photo color-wise. And as Li2CO3 implies, it's probably more advisable to start with multiple small samples of a few strains to figure out your own preferences before going all-in on a "huge amount" of one.
However I'd also agree with Li2CO3 - green malay seem to have a more stimulating effect. In my experience good for getting creative work done, makes you more conversational and doesn't seem to dull the intellect to any great degree.
Case in point, I had been using super green malay for the above effects. I often work from a home office and it can help as a pick-me-up and when I'm working on a project that requires some imagination. Just this afternoon tried some maeng da instead - questionable idea as I'm now pretty stoned & foggy with a fair body load, not exactly unpleasant but sure as hell am not getting much work done today. Possibly took a little too much as the maeng da is apparently stronger, but the effects are *very* different.
In all I'd say the green malay is a good choice, provided you ordered from a good vendor with a decent product.
