    2 days. 

    I dont know what the f1ck has gotten into people lately but it seems like many folks are closimg out their questions after jusy 3 hours. Dont do that its extremely rude. People are awarded 0 points if they answer a question after its been resolved.

    You should wait an hour after posting your question before choosing the best answer to it.

    You must wait one hour, but for the whole world to see the question, wait at least 24 hours.

    Give it 24 hrs, in an active subcategory. That way you've given plenty of time for people interested in the question to see it and reply. In a low-activity subcategory, you might even give it 2 - 3 days, just to help increase the odds of it being seen by user(s) who can provide quality answers.  Some users award BA quickly (you can award BA after the question has been posted 1 hr) if they have already received a correct answer to their question, or they just want their 3 pts back and don't really care about the quality of the responses.
