Senna obtusifolia is a weed of disturbed sites, waste areas, roadsides, riparian zones (banks of watercourses), floodplains, drainage channels, open woodlands, fallow land, crops and pastures in wetter tropical and subtropical environments. It usually grows as a pasture weed but is sometimes found along roads and in disturbed areas in rain forest.

Sicklepod is a vigorously growing, very competitive woody shrub which grows 1.5−2.5 m tall and 1 m wide. It is normally an annual, but plants which have been slashed or have survived chemical treatment often reshoot, flower and last for another year.
