Nepenthes are VERY picky about their fertilizer. MaxSea is generally ok, and some find success with osmocote pellets. I've fried pitchers with pellets, so generally try to steer clear. But osmocote contains nitrogen, phosphorus and potash, which is very different from the ingredients you have. I'd be cautious about trying any different kind of fertilizer, especially this one, as the risks generally outweigh any potential reward.
But, if you're destined to try it, take one pellet and put it in your least favorite (newish, large) pitcher and see what happens. If the plant dislikes it, the pitcher will burn, die, and rot back, but the plant will probably not die from it.
