Marshmalow is an Avicularia versicolor.

The scientific name "versicolor" originates in the fact that spiderlings and (sub-)adults of this species completely change their colour when growing up. There even was a time when biologists thought that the little blue ones and the big green/red ones were different species, unitl someone raised the little blue ones and found out that they change their outer appearance while growing. Fascinating!
