I've been terribly busy the last couple weeks and have neglected to take care of my plants and upon closer look these two aren't looking to great! I live in Canada and my house gets quite cold this time of year and they sit on a window sill so they may be more exposed. The sills they sit on are along south facing windows. Both have holes in their pots for drainage

First: Horribly yellow and dry. I've had to pull off some 'leaves' because they were so dry and shrivelled. Can't remember what the plant is so if someone could ID swell.

Second: Aloe laeta. Also horribly dry and shrivelling (except for two largest 'leaves') and the middle tier has completely come out!! Looks slightly sticky, red and rotted inside where the tier has come off. Anything to do to salvage the middle tier or the rest of the plant?

The first plant is a Manfreda - it should survive they can die back almost completely and be OK come spring - I have a bunch outside that are not looking too great right now, but that is what happens every winter. Unfortunately, I can see no way for that Aloe not to be toast.
