Done as it looks, the upward stall is usually more difficult than its downward counterpart, but become natural with practice.
It can help to slightly isolate the poi head for part of a rotation before actually stalling the poi.

This move is actually done by moving the hand over the poi while it's on the down stroke like the beginning of an isolation, then following it downwards vertically. The upwards one is done in the same way but on the upwards stroke instead of the downwards.

My poi aren't stretchy at all. They're more like bean bags on string. Do you need to have 'sock poi' or something similar to be able to do proper stalls? Also, is it possible for poi to be too long?

You can have any type of poi and be able to do stalls. It's really a matter of timing, weight, and length. I can execute an upward stall with flowtoys as well as sock poi with rice and sock poi with tennis balls.
