I have heard for certain plants, I suppose it depends on how much one gives them. Maybe over caffeinated!?!
I’ve heard the coffee grounds are good but not sure why. A lot of info is kinda old wives tales. That’s why sites that can debunk are neededβ€” like this one
Coffee grounds lowers soil pH (increase acidity). I wouldnt recommend it as you dont know whats your current soil pH and how much to use.
Peace lilies don't like direct sun and they also don't need a lot of water. TBH I wouldn't use coffee!

Yes I did a little more research and it seems coffee grounds are too acidic/caffeinated to mix directly into soil. You can put them in compost tho
Thanks
