It should only take a few weeks/a month.  make sure you have the 
specific partners in terms of the species of plant and the strain of 
bacteria.  also don't have any (or very little) fixed nitrogen 
(nitrate or ammonium) in your soil/nutrient solution - use washed 
vermiculite (rather than potting soil).    I just bought some 
legume-aid inoculant at the local farm and garden store, or mail 
order fromBurpee.
