The incubation period could vary from days to years.

Main suspect is bacteria.

Bacteria, namely novel invasive species of E.coli, have been implicated as a pivotal factor in the development of Crohn's disease. Other bacterial species specific to Crohn's  are B. ovatus and B. vulgatus.

It's different for colitis.
