I'm not sure why green specifically. But I had read somewhere that because Yugoslavia wore red and blue at the Olympics, the Slovenian Olympic Committee decided when Yugoslavia dissolved that they wanted a new identity. They did not want to be seen as the successor to Yugoslavia for political reasons. Thus, the different colours.

Being that this was decided in the early 90s, neon colours were all the rage. For instance the WLAF's Orlando Thunder wore neon green uniforms during their existence. So it may have been a sign of the times, I am slightly surprised they didn't wear teal. But it very well could be due to more than simply what was in at the time.
