One epoch in the SOL network lasts approximately 2-3 days.
You will start earning rewards once your delegation goes from activating to effective, which takes one full epoch. You will then receive your rewards in the following epoch.
Lets assume you select to delegate your SOL in epoch E1:
E1: Your SOL is activating (up to approx. 2-3 days)
E2: Your SOL is effective (approx. 2-3 days)
E3: Receive your rewards for epoch E2
Once your SOL stake is effective, you will receive rewards every epoch. It will automatically be added and compounded to your staked balance.
