Pandora sphinx pupation

Hi! Any advice would be appreciated on how
best to facilitate a Pandora Sphinx caterpillar's
pupation in a terrarium.
Currently, it is 2.5 inches long and is happily
eating away at wild grape foliage and stems.
I would like to know if it will pupate
underground, so I can prepare the proper
environment of soil or leaf litter, etc. Also,
any time frame for pupation? etc. etc.
Thanks in advance for any advice. If I'm not
clear on the matter, I will release it to the
wild grapes growing rampantly outdoors
here in CT. in a few days.
