I recently picked this guy up from the street, but he is:
1. seemingly unhealthy, and,
2. much too big for his pot, and for my tiny house
I would really like to keep him, and was wondering whether the leaf damage might be a rectifiable problem - Maybe he was overfed? Or he might just have outgrown the pot (he lives in a smaller plastic pot inside the green planter)? If it's a virus, how do I save him?
I also need to cut him back a little - I have no idea of how to prune this sort of plant, and whether there is any point in doing so without re-potting in this particular case. I suspect my best option would be propagation, but I also don't know where to start with a plant like this.
Any advice will be very welcome indeed! Thanks in advance.
(apologies if one is meant to live in the US in order to comment! I wasn't sure if that was the case)

Yucca, maybe? I would repot it into something larger with drain holes or in you garden.
