biceps are farely same muscles and the triceps not that small
how long do they need to recover and grow?
You will feel when they have recovered IMHO, stick with lifting for a while and just trust the cues that your body is giving you. Set schedules and routines work great in the sense that they get you into the gym and get you working out, but if your biceps and triceps are screaming 'no' and you work out anyway that is a bad idea, and vice versa.
Personally my biceps recover very quickly, and my triceps take quite a while relatively.
Depending on your diet and who you are any were from 24 hours to 72 hours if not longer. it obviously depends on how you hard you train etc as well
weight 202 - (bf around 14%)
Bench - 286

squat - 264 ATF
200 pound at 10% bf by next summer
Only you can find out. Your body is unique. Thats why we are suggesting a premade routine until you know answers to questions like this. Just like asking how many calories, or how much protein you need. Only you can find out what your body likes.
Worry about systemic recovery.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

Your biceps or triceps specifically not being fully recovered isn't gonna make much of difference in anything...
How long is a piece of string?
Talk low, talk slow, and don't talk too much.
I hope you're not asking because you want to train them 5 times a week.
