Although some Haworthia species can be found in full, bright sun, many live in more protected spots and therefore are adapted to thrive in partial shade (though few look their best without at least some direct sun or bright light). This makes Haworthias well adapted to lower light conditions found in homes.

Considering this, is my haworthia dying?
So, if you’re seeing dry, crispy leaves at the bottom of the plant–and only at the bottom– there’s no need to worry. This is normal! If the dry leaves start to get unsightly, just gently pull them away from the base of the plant and throw them away.
Can haworthia grow in low light?
This is the perfect succulent for beginners. Zebra haworthia or zebra plant handles high light, low light, and pretty much everything in between. … Zebra plants are slow growers, and they do lean toward the sun in low–light areas. As a result, turn the pot a quarter turn every few days to keep their growth even.
Predominantly native to South Africa, haworthia is usually small, around 3 to 5 inches in height (although some can shoot out taller blooming spikes), and a relatively slow grower.
Too much water/not enough water? … I’d say you need to water it. My haworthia leaves are much wider and flatter – my succulents tend to either and curl whenever I’m not watering them enough. Water fly until the pot drains and then stop – let it dry out but just – not too long.

While dead leaves at the bottom of your succulent are perfectly healthy, dead leaves on the upper parts of new growth are a sign of a problem–usually over- or under-watering. … If your plant’s leaves are starting to look yellow and transparent, and feel soggy or mushy to the touch, it’s likely suffered from overwatering.
If haworthias are exposed to too much sun, especially on warm days and in the afternoon when the sun is strongest, the leaves can start browning and loosing the green colour. This change is also likely to happen more in summer when the sun is out longer and the intensity of UV is higher.
However, the UC Master Gardeners recommend that you remove the pups in spring or autumn when the plant is not actively growing, to reduce stress to both the offshoots and the parent plant.
Haworthias are not monocarpic so they do not die after flowering. … While all monocarpic succulents die after flowering, they do spawn new plants before they bloom.
