New plant dad, here! I recently picked up these two plants from someone on craigslist. They seem to be dying and I'd like to learn what I can do to rescue them. I'm new to this, however, I have a passion to learn.

So far, I'm realizing that the white spots on the palm are some sort of powder mildew. Also, the majesty palm is wrapped in this ugly dead leaf stuff that I'd like to get rid of, but without it I feel it'd drop to the floor so I'm not sure what to replace it with.

The yucca has dying leaves and one of the trunks seems completely dead and another seems salvageable. In checking out the soil in both plants, it smells horrible and moldy. So bad the I coughed. I think I need to re pot and get new soil but don't know where to start.

I'd appreciate any help at all! I've searched all over but I can't find much on how to fix these specific plants' issues. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! <3
