Dragging in the Layers panel to reposition a layer below a Layer Group can give different results than expected. In the example below, dragging and dropping the texture layer below the Cactus Layer Group, results in the texture layer being added to the Layer Group (inside of it, instead of below it).
Instead, try clicking the disclosure triangle next to the Cactus Layer Group to close it (hide the contents), then drag and drop the texture layer below it.
Or, regardless of the state of the Layer Group (opened or closed) you can simply drag the Cactus Layer Group above the texture layer!
