We've not overwatered it (we don't think) and have owned these plants for two years. In the space of a week these started to wilt.

The right hand plant has a soft stem at the bottom.

Is it possible to transplant these?

These are Yucca Gigantea. They are really tough plants that will survive a lot of neglect and even low light. When grown in full sun with a light hand on the watering the foliage is a dark green and the stems can be as thick as your arm

These plants must have good drainage or the stems get soft and rot. Excellent light from a south facing window is a good idea as well.

It would be a good idea to repot them into a soil less mix for cacti or succulents as that drains better. You could probably put both into one smaller pot than they have now. A smaller pot dries out faster.

  • getting a growlight might be helpful in getting the plants healthy again,a good growlight will produce mainly blue and red light that the plants need to stay healthy. Commented Jul 9, 2022 at 3:43
