Just make sure they are buried deep in the substrate and don't come loose (otherwise you could have an ammonia spike).

I prefer the clay+peat fertiliser balls now, you can make them yourself, or buy them cheaply online too.

Osmocote leaves little platic balls kicking around the tank and fish/snails dig them up sometimes, whick risks ammonia spikes, so I don't like using it anymore.
