Dear Gayacharan!
The amplification that you will be obtaining like this will be geometric and not exponential. That, as may number of cycles, as is the number fold the amplification will be. That means, you cannot use the number of cycles as is used in normal PCR. Also, check the polarity (5' or 3')of ur primer as well as template, if you know primer designing. Also, in order to get amplification of your ss DNA,if you use too many cycles, I doubt the fidelity of the reaction. So, all these factors you need to take into account.

All the best for your experiment.
