I have a snake plant indoors in a dimly lit area; it has been doing fine (about 1. 5 yr old) until now. It has mushy bottoms and they appear rotting and fall over. I water this plant only once month. If I do not water, the soil becomes so dry that some of the stalks fall over too. What am I doing wrong? I do not have a lot of natural light in house so, therefore, I thought this plant would work well. Would appreciate your input.
Check the roots for root rot and repot in new potting soil. This article will help:
I have a snake plant that has sprouted buds or blooms for the last two years. Can these be used to begin new plants if potted in soil?
They can, though these plants are normally easier to propagate by cuttings. These articles should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/hpgen/propagating-houseplant-seeds.htm
My snake plants are on my porch. What is the minimum temperature they can take? When must I bring them indoors? Thanks.
This plant will generally not tolerate cold or frost so do not leave it outdoors. Once temps begin to drop below 50 degrees F. and prior to your first frost, you will need to bring your plant indoors.
I have this plant on the deck of my vacation home and will be bringing it in for the winter. The spot inside has great indirect light but won't be watered for 3 months. Will it make it? Thanks.
Though the Snake Plant can be neglected for several weeks as a time, 3 months without water is likely to long.
I noticed that my snake plant has white flakes or dots of what looks like white powder specks on their leaves. How do I get rid of them or is my plant infected and should I throw it out?
This is likely Mealybug.
Neem Oil is a good treatment.

How can I get my snake plant to have all its leaves grow upright? Mine are all over the place.
Your plant may need to be divided. If the pot is simply to full, the plant may be spreading out.
Also make sure you rotate the plant occasionally to provide even light for the plant.

What to do if I find brown spots around the edges of my plants leaves?
If you water your plants with conditioned water, salts can build up over time and cause browning or black edges of leaves.
You can flush the salts from the soil and use distilled water to water your plants.
If you do use tap water, let it sit on the counter for 48 hours before using.
