Default How long for dry hop?

Just racked my lager to secondary before and chucked in some hops with it. Then I had a thought. Is it bad if I leave the hops in there for too long? The hops aren't in a bag so I cant get them out and I want to let the beer clear for 2 weeks. Is 2 weeks too long to dry hop?

Belgian wheat lager
Nothing left to drink
European Lager

Nope that works. You dont want to go much longer past that though, the beer will get a grassy flavor

Two weeks is ok, a month is too much.
