Haworthias, in the wild, generally grows underground with their "windows" poking up slightly to catch some sun. These succulents will actually do poorly if exposed to too much sun so it is best to grow them either with morning sun only or dappled sun or somewhere shaded away from the hot sun. 

Avoid overwatering in Summer; they'll end up rotting if the soil is wet and the weather is hot.
