In brief: Depends
Depends on location, severity , blood supply, activity level.
If it is going to heal it can take 3 months.

In brief: Forever.
Meniscus tears rarely heal on their own.
Only the outer third of the meniscus has a blood supply, and even tears in this region typically need to be repaired if there is to be any hope for healing. A torn meniscus in a young to middle-aged patient should usually be resected or repaired to prevent further damage.
