I believe it is 30 - 40 days. Length can be dependent on water temp. The cooler the longer... kinda like bread or something.

Ya, mine are usually 25-30 days. Probably because temp is like 81 normally... I sure turn it down slowly.

Well, apparently not lol. At least for me.

I hope so as well. It's a bit frightening how long she has been holding them, though....
