Urea is ammonia. I'd be wary of dry dosing with that.

Unfortunately, the fertilizer you found at home is unsuitable for aquatic use as it contains urea. Urea will break down into ammonia, which is toxic for aquatic livestock.

Many people use dry chemicals to fertilize their plants. Please take a look at my Beginner's Guide to the Planted Aquarium for more information regarding dosing. It is linked in my signature below.
